A Virtual 24hr run/walk/crawl to eliminate the stigma of depression.

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION FOR ALL THE DETAILS OF ‘beREAL 24hr’ Virtual Race . SUPPORTER REGISTRATION OPEN ONLY!

Welcome to the 1st Annual ‘beREAL 24hr’ Virtual Race! We are so excited to finally bring this unique global race to you! This is a great way to get the whole d2e community together in the shared pursuit of running and eliminating the stigma of depression. Best part is, the start line can be wherever you want it to be!!

  • WHO IS THE beREAL 24hr VIRTUAL RACE FOR? Anybody can run this event. It's open to runners of all abilities - from fast elites to back-of-the-pack partiers and everyone in between. All shapes, all sizes, all ages, all levels of running!

  • WHAT IS THE beREAL 24hr VIRTUAL RACE? Probably the best question. First of all, this global run is like a DIY race. In one day, May 4th, 2019, everyone that is registered will run between 1 mile and 300 miles. You can choose to run the 24 hours solo or gather a huge group of friends and run it together. Your miles will be tracked and submitted! The race is not based on fast you get between point A and point B, it is based on how far you can go in 24 hours!! The top finisher isn’t who runs the fastest mile or the fastest marathon its who goes the farthest wherever they want on May 4th. The champion could be circling the supermarket, running on a track or summiting Everest!! The whole point is to get everyone out and running around the globe on the same day! Oh, and there are some AWESOME PERKS involved in the registration (see below!)

  • WHEN IS THE beREAL 24hr VIRTUAL RACE? MAY 4, 2019 is the day! You can choose to run this 24hr event anywhere from 12:01am May 4th, 2019 (In Your Time Zone) to 11:59pm May 4th, 2019 (In Your Time Zone).

  • WHERE IS THE beREAL 24hr VIRTUAL RACE? Best part about this, you get to do this wherever you want! Road, trail, mountain, treadmill, anywhere! You can even drive to the next town, next state/province/country, anywhere! Just nowhere illegal. Seriously, don't break any laws people.

  • HOW WILL THIS ALL WORK? It's actually pretty simple. You register right here. Once you receive your confirmation email, start training! Between now and May you will receive your amazing beREAL Check-in Journal. In addition to a journal, for Ultra Entry applicants you will get a t-shirt and a medal. Once May 4th, 2019 comes around, have your run/route planned and go for it! Make sure to track your run! You will submit your tracked runs if you want to be eligible for prizes (yes there are prizes.

CAN I RUN AS A GROUP?

Of course you can!! Sharing is caring, especially with running. Run with everyone you want. If you want to gather 1000 people and start running across the United States like Forrest Gump then go for it!! However, only 6 of those participants’ miles count! Groups can be as small as 2 and as large as 6. Each member of the group can run for all 24 hours. At the end of the 24 hours the entire groups’ total mileage will be added and that’s your score! Simple enough!

I CAN'T RUN FOR 24 HOURS!

This is an all-abilities event done on your own time. You can run, you can walk, you can even crawl. It's all good! You also have lots of time to train up to the duration. Trust us! The whole point is for this community to get out and be active on the same day, share our experiences through pictures, videos and sharing our stories. YOU GOT THIS!

24 HOURS IS NOT ENOUGH!

Well aren't you a hotshot! Go for it! Lucky for you, we won't penalize you if you run longer than 24 hours. Go run 36hrs, tag 170 peaks and set 12 land speed records. BUT, we only count the first 24 hours. The other challenge will be to try and cram in as much as you can into those 24 hours. Remember, there are some prizes at stake :)

 

HOW & WHEN WILL I GET ALL MY STUFF ?

Once run registration is complete in a few weeks, we will begin manufacturing and making sure everything is up to our strict standards. Then we will ship your products to you (via USPS) in time for the big event on May 4th. If you live outside of the United States, shipping can take some time so we will ship international packages first! This is the important part: MAKE SURE ALL OF YOUR INFO IS CORRECT. We’re talking about shipping addresses, email addresses and shirt sizes. As we get closer to the run date, we will be emailing you all with some fun updates, including how to upload your ‘beREAL 24hr’ Virtual Race challenge GPS file, how everything is being manufactured and more!

HOW DO I TRACK MY RUN & WHERE DO I SEND IT?

If you want to be eligible for ANY of the prizes at stake, you need to track your run with a GPS enabled device. Whether a watch or a phone app, you should be able to track pretty easily. On May 4th you will track your run. You will have 36 hours to upload your ‘beREAL 24hr’ Virtual Race Challenge file to Strava.com and send us the link to the activity. (If you do not have a Strava account, you will need to create one - it’s super easy. If you DO have a Strava account, you will need to make it public in order for us to view the activity and all the data. Remember, you can set it back to private once we collect the data). We will determine winners and make the announcements as well as publicly post the results the following week.  

So that's pretty much it. Pick what size T-Shirt you want, purchase your entry and start training! We are so excited for this and we hope you are too! Let's gather together and eliminate the stigma of depression!! Remember, this is a fun and friendly event so get all your family & friends involved. May 4th is fast approaching, let's make the first annual beREAL 24hr Challenge incredible!

REMEMBER TO USE THE HASHTAG "#beREAL24"!
